more to know

K18 Professional Mist is the pre-service part of our 2-step in-salon service. Our mist was engineered to make hair strong enough to withstand damage that occurs during a chemical service. The pH level of 7.5-8.0 shifts the cuticle layer to penetrate into hair’s cortex and hone in on damage sites, resetting the hair's healthy canvas before exposing it to the damage of bleach, color, or other chemical services.

creates hair like new

Traveling into the inner-most layers of hair to reach the core polypeptide chains (keratin chains), our revolutionary K18Peptide™ is just the right size and makeup to fit in and reconnect broken keratin chains. You can feel and see the difference with the first use.

we have answers.

who is k18 mist for?

K18 is safe to use on all hair types and textures, all generations, and was made to be used on all types of damage.

why is k18 mist applied before bleaching / coloring?

K18 mist is applied before bleach or color services because it works on renewing client’s existing damage to strengthen the hair canvas pre-treatment. Restoring strength and elasticity in just 4 minutes means the stylist’s work can go further without having to edit process around damage. The K18 mist’s liquid formulation optimizes the efficacy of the K18Peptide™ by opening up the hair’s cuticle layers and getting the renewing peptide deep into hair’s inner cortex to repair broken polypeptide chains (keratin chains).

how is the k18 mist applied before a chemical service?

Follow these steps for best use:
- Prep hair by lightly misting with water.
- Apply K18 Mist section by section, the amount needed depends on client’s hair type and condition. Reference chart for approximate dosage.
- Wait 4 minutes. DO NOT rinse out. This is a good time to mix or prepare for your chemical service. You can dry hair after the 4 minutes are up, if needed.

why do i need to mist the hair with water before applying the k18 mist?

Misting the hair with water allows the cuticle layers to prepare for optimal penetration of the mist into the inner cortex. In the same way a damp sponge absorbs more water, damp hair absorbs K18.

How much K18 MIST do I use?

The amount of K18 MIST will depend on hair length, thickness, and condition. Refer to our usage chart for guidance.

can i use k18 mist + mask together?

These formulas are intended to be used at separate times during the service but work together to renew damaged hair from the inside out.

During a chemical service, K18 Mist is applied prior to chemical application. K18 Mask is applied post-service to renew damaged caused during the chemical service.

During a few services, you will only use theK18 Mist in the salon. During a perm for example, K18 Mist is applied before the perm solution, K18 mist is then reapplied again after the neutralizer instead of the mask to avoid additional weight on newly formed curls.

renews strength, softness, smoothness, and bounce

AZURE’s stylist prepped hair before her bleaching service with K18 Pro Mist to restore her healthy canvas before undergoing the platinum service. Post-bleaching, the stylist treated hair with the K18 Pro Mask to restore elasticity and bounce.
MELISSA had brittle, dull hair from previous perm service damage. She received the K18 Pro Mist with her perm to deliver smooth, bouncy volume without the breakage.
CHELSEA came into the salon with dry, brittle strands from frequent heat styling. Her stylist started with the K18 Pro Mist to restore strength and health to hair before going through her lightening service. After her highlights, her stylist used the K18 Pro Mask treatment to repair any damaged caused during the highlight service.

A light spray saves the day

This spray helps to protect the hair before applying color. I find the color has a more brilliant shade and lasting power. Highly recommended

Great product!

I'm so glad I tried this system out! I think they are great products and will continue to use on my clients. I do wish it came in the option of drops for your color & lightener formulas instead of the spray/mist but that is just my preference.

Amazing

I absolutely love this. I did learn that I do need to process lightened hair 5 to 10 minutes longer with this barrier on it. Other than that, pure magic.

My hair is heavily hi lighted & endured quiet a bit of damage. The ends were fries, then I used K18 Mask for 6 days & saw amazing results. I am continuing the process every 3 days & continuing to get even better results. This stuff works!
